What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Adding a P.S. is never a good idea, either:


The fact is, sometimes wreckerators just have a hard time getting the picture:

Or maybe they just really stink at drawing.


Thanks to April B., Alli N., Robin G., Kalisha G., Kelly & Craig, & Carole for helping us all appreciate the finer intricacies of the English language. And also for the snort-giggles.


NOTE: In times of tragedy sometimes the most helpful thing you can do is your job. Our job is to make you laugh - but never for a moment think that John, Sharyn, and I are not heartbroken by the events in Boston yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this senseless act, and we wish you all every healing and peace.
